Sometimes we make a batch of sauce that is too small to warrant printing real-deal labels. These sauces go quickly and might not come back!

PAST SAUCE DU JOURS


Pumpkin Curry-  
Coconut milk makes this smooth as a pumpkin pie with a robust, friendly curry finish. There are a couple of Scorpion peppers in the mash so just a bit hotter than the Honey Lime Curry. Great in a chicken stir fry or try it in a roasted vegetable dish, it's a 7 on the 2-15 heat scale.

Stone Soup 2021-  
One of the most keenly awaited sauces of the year with a multi layer flavor profile, Savory yielding to fruity leading into an herby/spicy finish. This year the Scorpion Peppers in the blend are a bit more apparent, still very much everyday usable. It's an 8 on the 2-15 heat scale.

Roasted Peach Melba-  
Roasting fruits and vegetables brings out their natural sugars and intensifies their flavor. There are lots of layers of flavor in this sauce. It's a natural in a smoothie/cocktail application. It's also a great dessert sauce in a cobbler with ice cream. Or try it as a pan juice sauce addition for chicken dishes. It's a 5 on the 2-15 heat scale.

Zucchini Herb-  
Made with zucchini, summer, patty pan, Lebanese and zephyr squashes from the farmers markets, roasted apples, roasted garlic and has a vibrant backbeat of sage, rosemary, thyme and lavender.

Buell's Orchard Strawberry Rhubarb- 
 This is truly the first summer sauce, we make a version of this vibrant sauce every year for one of our local berry growers. A natural for ice cream sundaes, try this to make a strawberry dressing/dip (see last months 'Now That I've Bought It, What Can I Do With It?') in chicken salad, fruit salad, summer slaw and pasta salads, vinaigrettes. Nice rhubarb tang, not achingly sweet It's a 5 on the 2-15 heat scale.

Vidalia Peach-  
We tweaked an old secret menu sauce and got it so tasty we decided to make it the new Sauce du Jour. Vidalia Peach is made with a new pepper for us--Cobanero. It's a chile from Guatemala. Not a screaming hot profile, you'll need to slather it on to get a sniffle. Primarily California peaches with the last of the CLiCK fruit (rampaging beavers gnawed down all the peach trees last fall), Vidalia Onions from Georgia and the first of this season's Rhubarb. It's a 3 on the 2-15 heat scale.

Dragons Chili Sauce- 
  We brought back this classic just in time for Cinco de Mayo. More of a 'gringo southwestern style' than traditional Mexican with a strong roasty toasty pepper flavor profile. Heirloom tomato based with local tomatillos, roasted garlic and our own CLiCK grown peppers providing the kick. Great for Chili Beans, taco filling and as an addition to your own Chili recipe. Try it in your smoker or make a kick ass hummus.(Heat: 6 out of 15)

Zesty Sesame Tamari
'Zesty' here refers more to the herbs and spices rather than the heat scale. This has a nice initial bite that is quickly soothed by the creamy sesame tahini and all the fruit and vegetable purees with a nice zesty finish. A little saltier than most of our sauces, using tamari makes this wheat free. (Heat: 6 out of 15)

Stone Soup 2020- Every year we celebrate the farmers market season with Stone Soup, a spectacular sauce that showcases everything that came through the kitchen this summer. This sauce always features peppers from the Stone Soup Pepper Project, the bounty from our spring seedling giveaway. (Heat: 6 out of 15)

Honey Jalapeño-
 Not your average everyday Jalapeno sauce,  Slightly funky Pumpkin Jalapeños give this the color of a jack o lantern and, even cooler, the honey comes from the bees that pollinated the CLiCK pepper garden. (Heat: 4 out of 15)

Flaming Fury- 
Peaches and Habaneros, sweet heat. Flaming Fury is a late ripening peach variety grown by the Irish Bend Orchard. This is the first sauce of the year to be made with the new crop of Habaneros, and is just a little hotter than last years version. (Heat: 7 out of 15)

Lemon Ginger Rhubarb- 
Bright and Sassy, think of lighter summer fare- salads and slaws with a slightly East meets West fusion theme (Heat: 6 out of 15)

Dragon's Smoothie- 
Nectarines, Peaches, Blueberries, Strawberries, Pears, Plums, Apples and Bananas with a balancing Rhubarb note. This features last years Stone Soup Hot Pepper Mash- initial Scorpion sting mellowed out quickly by the fruit and coconut cream. (Heat Level: 7)

Grapefruit Shandy- 
Made as part of a fundraising session for CLiCK, the Grapefruit Shandy features locally grown Cascade Hops and a Bavarian Malt Extract. Very IPA and, quite honestly, not an everyday sauce- high citrus/pineapple notes with a very strong hop nose. (Heat Level: 6)

Barton Farm Roasted Root Vegetable-  
We cleaned off the table at the last outdoor farmers market, your daily RDA of vegetables in a teaspoon of hot sauce (Heat Level: 5)

Sweet Potato Pineapple  with a Hint of Brown Sugar
 Packed full of sweet potatoes from the Farmington Farm Truck mobile farmers market,  with a Scorpion Pepper Kick, mellowing down to a slightly fruity finish. Heat Level: 8

Jalapeacheno- 
  Think snappy salsa verde with a peach backbeat, this sauce has been VERY popular at the farmers markets in spite of (or due to?) the cute factor of the label. This is a solid 5 on the 2-15 heat scale.

Zucchini Herb-   
Bright and sassy salsa verde style sauce featuring farmers market zucchini and green zebra tomatoes, roasted garlic, Stone Soup hot pepper mash, farmers market fennel and herbs and sofrito made in the Co-op kitchen by the Grow Windham kids. This is about a 5 on the 2-15 heat scale.

Lemon Ginger Rhubarb- 
Bright and Sassy, think of lighter summer fare- salads and slaws with a slightly East meets West fusion theme (Heat: 6 out of 15)

Put Da Lime in Da Coconut-  Don't be fooled by the frivolous name, this is a serious sauce.This year's Stone Soup Pepper Mash packs a quick Scorpion bite smoothed down a bit by the coconut milk and citrus. Go ahead, sing along with us. Get Down, Get Funky!

The Dragon's Smoothie-  Peaches, pears, apples, nectarines, plums and strawberries from the CLiCK orchard. Also featuring the first use of bananas in the history of Dragon's Blood Elixir. Heat Level: 5

Stone Soup Salsa Rojo-  Every spring we give away seedlings; 75 families contributed peppers from the plants they nurtured all summer. Heat Level: 5

Harissa (Explains it All)-  A non traditional version of a Moroccan/Tunisian cooking sauce with vibrant spice levels and a well balanced flavor/heat profile. In our version apples replace the traditional olive oil. (5 on the 2-15 heat scale) 

Barton Farms Roasted Root Vegetable- An excellent example of the 'farmers market swap' style of sauce making- a tableful of root vegetables from the Barton Family Farm alchemized into a deeply satisfying heartwarming winter sauce. This style of sauce making showcases one of the most valuable aspects of local sourcing- completing the circle. The farmer has surplus produce, DBE takes that surplus and turns it into a value added product, splits the resulting yield so that both the farmer and the maker profit. 

Spicy Gazpacho- This one's got red, yellow, orange and green heirloom tomatoes, farmers market cukes, hot and mild(ish) Stone Soup pepper mashes, sofrito made by Grow Windham, roasted garlic and a bit of avocado as a non-traditional textural agent.

Lemon Ginger Rhubarb- This is a bright and tangy citrus rhubarb overtones with a strong ginger finish. The Stone Soup pepper mash/ginger combination pops this up to about an 8 on the 2-15 heat scale. This will work well in any southeast Asian dish or as a zesty slaw/salad dressing component.

The Dragon's Chile Sauce- We're featuring a purchased ingredient in our newest sauce- an award winning Chili Cookoff spice blend lends a beautiful roasty-toasty top note to the Dragon's Chili Sauce. Ripe summer tomatoes and several different Stone Soup Hot Pepper Mashes combine with local onions, garlic and a touch of dark chocolate for a spectacular flavor profile. About a 6 on the 2-15 scale with a modest habanero bite.

The Pink LabelPink Label is Katie's first sauce (read her origin story about it here) and she and Doug cooked it up with a no hype, no stereotype approach. With red habanero, ghost, scorpion and (fresh and dried!) Carolina reaper peppers, it's hot enough to be comfortable wearing pink. We may need to expand the 2-15 rating scale, this one might be just a bit hotter than the Wild Elephant Deterrent. The fruit adds a different dynamic; it's not instantly incendiary.

Smoky Maple Pumpkin Pie - What do you do with Halloween pumpkins after the holiday? Turn them into the newest seasonal sauce: Smoky Maple Pumpkin Pie! It's got warm Chipotle and Cayenne heat, is slightly sweet and tangy with a maple syrup backbeat, and is a great autumn menu inspiration.

Green Zebra Sofrito - Sometimes ingredients fit together so well that it's just impossible to ignore - an impromptu sauce is born! Lemony green zebra tomatoes and green cayenne peppers from Falls Creek Farm with Grow Windham made Sofrito.

Cobblestone Farm Golden Gazpacho- Yellow Finn Zucchinis and cukes from Cobblestone Farm in Mansfield come together with yellow and orange tomatoes to make the taste of summer. A bit reminiscent of the Lenny Award winning Stone Soup sauce.  Heat Level: 6 on the 2-15 heat scale.
